 FIDE master John Curdo of Auburn, who has won more Mass. Opens than any other player in the state's history, has judged the winning games for the 80th Massachusetts Open "Most Interesting Game" prizes — generously donated by MACA life member Walter Champion of Wellesley. The winners will be mailed checks for significant cash prizes as well as 3-DVD sets of GM Patrick Wolf's "Improve Your Chess." Winners are as follows:  

Open section: Carey Theil of Arlington for his game against David Plotkin of Newton
Under 2100 section: Nicholas Plotkin of Sharon for his game against Richard Rose of Buzzards Bay
Under 1800 section: Larry Eldridge of West Newton for his game against Alex Szejman of Cambridge
Under 1500 section: Brandon Wu of Littleton for his game against Arthur Tang of Durham, New Hampshire
MACA congratulates all the winners, thanks all those who submitted games for judging, and especially thanks FM Curdo for his service in judging nearly 100 games! The winning games, as well as scores of other games submitted, will be published in the JulySeptember issue of Chess Horizons.
